RECORDED RECREATIONAL READING FOR THE BLIND

Digital recording of the News, Books, Magazines and Journals requires two people....a Reader and a Director(formerly called a Monitor). The Director controls the recording computer and 'directs' the reader, starting and stopping the recording process as necessary. The Director generally has a copy of the material being recorded and watches for errors in reading or pronunciation. The position of Director, therefore, requires a basic knowledge of computer operation and the general knowledge of the English language. Pronunciation of foreign or unfamiliar words can be determined by use of computer browsing and/or various dictionaries that the studio has available. The studio will teach a Director how to use the specialized recording software. NOTE: If a potential Director has some familiarity with word processing software that will simplify learning the recording software. Many aspects of the recording software are similar in concept to word processing.

Description

RRRB, Inc has a long history of dedicated people that have built and continue to maintain its services. For more than 40 years, we have been evolving with the times and technologies. Subscribership, recorded materials and the volunteer base also continue to grow. 1971: A small group of volunteers begin tape recording local news for visually or physically challenged Sun City, Arizona residents. 1980: New studios completed on Lions Club property by the Del Webb Corporation and cassette recording operations are transferred from the Sun City Professional Building. 2006: Driven by new volunteers in a new technological era, the studios begin a gradual changeover to digital recording. 2010: All operations are digital and recording is fullly coordinated with the standards of NLS and the Library of Congress. 2012: Two additional recording booths are added make a total of three fully operational. 2016: Weekly news becomes a weekly news magazine now known as "The West Valley Talking News" and, late in the year, KRUVradiosun begins operations online as the dedicated "Voice of Valley Volunteers." The radio station features an eclectic musical playlist along with excerpted material from "The West Valley Talking News." It also features programs that tell the story of any and all (if possible) of the Maricopa "Valley of the Sun" volunteer-based agencies and services. 2018: Organizational growth continues with new volunteer job opportunities designed to support and enhance the services and purposes of RRRB, Inc.
